Partnership With Humane Society Celebrates Sixth Anniversary

September 19th, 2013

AMLCAlmost 70,000 surgeries, and over 24,000 medical exams later, CVM is joining the Oregon Humane Society in celebrating six productive years of partnership at the Animal Medical Learning Center.

Every week, for six years, there have been at least three OSU veterinary students on rotation at the AMLC helping with the tens of thousands of animals that come through the shelter every year — including more than 4,000 animals transferred from other shelters throughout the west.

Over half of the animals at the OHS need spay or neuter surgery, and OSU students are in the hospital assisting Dr. Kirk Miller on most of them. The sheer volume of cases has allowed OSU students to solidify skills they learned at OSU and on other preceptorships.

“Thank you to everyone at OSU-CVM for your support of the OHS Animal Medical Learning Center,” says OHS Director Kris Otteman. “Looking forward to continued success in our partnership!”
